4th Sunday in Advent

Advent is the season of waiting. In the Christian year, it is the four Sundays before Christmas. Each Sunday there is a candle lit. They symbolize Love, Hope, Joy, and Peace. This week is about love. The reading below found on the UUA Worship Web is about waiting and love. What are we waiting for? What does love mean to us?

The Virgin Monologue By Jim Burklo

“‘God did it’ isn’t an explanation,” said Joseph.
He got no account for the baby’s chromosomes,
No description of the mechanism that
Transmuted the divine shadow into royal blood.

“‘The devil made me do it’ would have sounded better to me,” said Joseph,
Though it never did him any good when he said it to his old girlfriends.

It was a mystery to him,
What moved him to listen for the rhyme
And puzzle for the reason
That Mary gave him the news in the manner that she did:

A mystery that put him at peace.
There was something in the way she held his hand
That no medical journal article could correlate;
Something in the way she gazed into his eyes
That eluded the grasp of genomic research.

“I don’t ask you to believe what I am saying,” she said,
“I don’t ask you to take my word for it.
I just ask you to love, as if.

Love me as if I were yours,
Love this baby as if he were yours,
As I love you as if you were mine.”

Love “as if” makes every child divine
Love “as if” fits all in David’s line
Love “as if” this love was meant for you
Love “as if” the Christmas tale is true.

Blessed Yule Evening with UUFM

Celebrate Yule with songs and guided meditation.

Friday, December 22 at 6 pm at the UUFM (Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Morgantown).  Our theme is coming out of the dark and welcoming back the light.

We ask that participants bring with them a story of the darkness, whether it be a literal story about something memorable that happened in the dark, or perhaps metaphorically of coming out of a physical or emotional darkness, which they will be asked to share as part of the ritual.  Afterwards, we plan a potluck meal, so please bring something yummy to share.  We will have traditional Yule foods as well as wassail.

The fellowship is located at 429 Warrick Avenue, Morgantown, WV.  Hope to see you there.

Season’s Blessings,

Cricket

Sunday, December 24, 2017: People, Look East

People, look east. The time is near
Of the crowning of the year.
Make your house fair as you are able,
Trim the hearth and set the table.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the guest, is on the way.

Join us for a service of songs and readings. Come early for an extended coffee and cookie hour.

Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m. at the Progressive Women’s Association Uptown Event Center, 305 Washington Ave. in downtown Clarksburg, behind the Courthouse. There are classes for children and adults 10 to 10:45 am, and a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.
